For portable ultrasound systems, we offer depo repair warranties, which means the machine would be shipped to MedCorp’s warehouse for repair and service if or when it was needed.

The sonographer will train and support your staff and technicians as they set up the ultrasound machine purchased from MedCorp.

If there is an issue with my ultrasound machine, can MedCorp provide a loaner unit during repair?

We provide loaners for portable ultrasound equipment if it was purchased from MedCorp and the warranty includes our loaner program. If the loaner program in not a part of your warranty, you may still rent a loaner on a per diem basis. Rates start at $500 per week. Contact your MedCorp sells rep to request a portable ultrasound loaner.

Yes, any equipment information should be set to Chris Munyon at cmunyon@medcorpllc.com.

Does MedCorp ship ultrasound machines outside of the United States?

Yes, we ship portable ultrasound, cart based systems, ultrasound parts and probes worldwide.

What should I expect from a refurbished ultrasound machine?

Every refurbished system from MedCorp must be like-new and fully-functioning in order to pass our refurbishment standards and be put back on the market. Many of our used systems were demo and floor models that were very lightly used to begin with. You can expect to put any of our used systems next to a new one without being able to notice any difference between the two. Learn more about our rigorous in-house refurbishment process here.

What is a "point of care" ultrasound machine?

"Point of care" refers to portable ultrasounds that can perform fast exams, usually for abdominal, musculoskeletal or anesthesia applications. Our most popular point of care ultrasounds are the GE Venue 40, GE Venue 50, GE Logiq E and GE VScan. These systems start up faster than others with a less than 20-25 second boot time.

Should I invest in an ultrasound machine at my clinic?

Yes! Having an ultrasound machine at your clinic is a great way to generate revenue for the practice and provide a higher level of care for patients. It also gives your staff the ability to diagnose treatment needs faster and more accurately. Read more about the ROI of ultrasound machines here.

How quickly can a technician show up on site if I need a repair?

Typically an ultrasound service technician can be on site within 24 hours of you contacting us.
